Inside Story - Bangladesh's war wounds

Hundreds of thousands of people in Bangladesh have been staging daily protests in the heart of the capital Dhaka.They are demonstrating against the decisions of a war crimes tribunal that was set up to investigate those accused of abuses during Bangladesh's so called war of independence with Pakistan in 1971.Some say the trials are politically motivated, and others demand no less than the death penalty for the political figures who are accused and convicted.The protests show how deeply Bangladesh's bloody past still affects the present.
